An Independent buying group for the independent retailer

Who we work with

We work with over one hundred global suppliers, encompassing many leading furniture brands.

Who we work for

Since 1990 we have been working with quality independent furniture retailers spanning the UK & Ireland.

Today we are proud to boast a membership of over 200 stores and continue to grow at a rapid rate with the introduction of our new associated bed membership.

What our members have to say…

As a proudly independent family owned and operated retailer, we had shied away from joining a buying group for many years. The Minerva team itself is small, keeping the group’s operating costs to a minimum.

They also arrange exceptionally well-organised biannual exhibitions and provide access to a collection of friendly fellow retailers both large and small, long established and newer operators, from whom you can always learn something new.

Emma Leeke – Leekes

Minerva offers great financial benefits to its members. It is an invaluable forum that, as an independent retailer, keeps us informed, up to date and ahead of the competition. 

The superb twice yearly exhibitions have become the most important buying trips in our year. It is not at all dictatorial and is an extremely friendly place to do business.

Simon Kirkpatrick – Thomas Hearn Furnishings

Being a member of Minerva brings numerous advantages and has proved to be extremely beneficial to our business.

The dedicated exhibitions, the networking and friendship along with the financial benefits are all of huge value. I would strongly recommend Minerva membership to any quality independent retailer who is seeking to strengthen their own business.
